here for today. two systems merging, colliding off the eastern seaboard, strengthening, moving north and eastward, conditions rapidly deteriorating. as we head on through the afternoon, new york city likely starting as rain and changing over to snow. overnight here from providence, rhode island, on north to bangor, maine, blizzard conditions overnight. a distinction of strong winds and low visibility leading to very dangerous situation as far as travel is concerned. not a good night to be out and about on the roadways. that's for sure. accumulationswise, new york city right in the battleground. likely around a foot by the time all is said and done. wide swath of one to two feet of snow. including providence, rhode island, and boston. off to the west of boston, as much as two feet by the time all is said and done. rob and diana, back to you. >> don't you just love winter? oh, man. >> you mean when it snows? >> thank you, jim, for that. here's the rest of today's weather now. we have some showers around orlando and miami. some rain from san francisco to san diego. up to a half foot of snow in the southern california mountains, sierra nevada and northern rockies. >> 40s from seattle to salt lake city. 30s in the midwest.
